I am thankful for modern medicine. We have the ability to lower blood pressure & cholesterol, calm indigestion, recover from the flu and fight cancer.
Unfortunately I've learned the hard way that I need to read labels carefully when taking medicine. I woke up this morning with a headache. As a migraine sufferer, I've learned to be grateful for any headache that is NOT a monster one, but this one just wouldn't go away. I finally decided to take something around 11am. My headache is better, but I couldn't figure out why I was so dizzy and sluggish. I've never reacted to simple pain reliever before. When I went back to check the bottle, I discovered that instead of taking regular Ibuprofen, I had taken two Ibuprofen PM.
There is not enough caffeine in the world to counteract the effects of a "help you sleep" medicine taken before noon. <yawn>
